"We were on our way to West Virginia and it was a sudden impact, a loud noise and everyone was jolted", Rep. Carlos Curbelo, of Florida, said on MSNBC.

"Two Amtrak crew members and two passengers were transported to a local hospital with minor injuries", the Amtrak spokesperson said.

Amtrak spokeswoman Kimberly Woods says there are no reported injuries to passengers or crew members after the incident that happened around 11:20 a.m.in Crozet, Virginia. "More information will be released as it becomes available". Flake's 18-year-old son was on the train with him.

The office of Rep. Roger Marshall, R-Kan., said the lawmaker and doctor was helping people who were injured. Jeff Flake (R-Ariz.) and Rep. Brad Wenstrup (R-Ohio) sprang into action.

The GOP retreat is going ahead as planned at this time, according to Republicans on the train.
